About The 2.6 Challenge

The UK’s mass participation event industry has come together with JustGiving to create The 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign launched in response to COVID-19 to help Save the UK's Charities.

The top 25 mass participation sports events in the UK raise more than £150 million for charities every year, and with fundraising events up and down the country delayed or postponed due to COVID-19, we know charities are facing uncertainty. We want to help.

That's why we're working with the organisations behind Britain’s biggest mass participation events, including Human Race, parkrun, The Great Run Company, Run 4 Wales, Grounded Events, London Landmarks, Virgin Sport, Limelight Sports, Threshold Sports, Running High and London Marathon Events, and supporting them in their campaign to Save the UK’s Charities.
